courageous adventures, instilling values in their kids."
- 08:55 - "... Recognize that when you're heading
out like this, expect that there's going to be some resistance,
that we have an enemy, and if the enemy can stop you before you get
started, he's going to do it."

church or in our community.”

- 14:21 -Explaining “The Five
Principles/Practices” that the global church implements.
- Every believer praying and in scripture 1-2 hours/day
- Every believer spending time with the lost on a daily
- Every believer serving in some capacity the poor and the needy
around you - Looking for people who are open
- Every believer is getting together with other believers to
study the scriptures and learning a way to obey it
- Every believer is training someone else to do these
- 16:55 - "And that's part of the the idea on the
prayer side is what like every believer in the global church that's
practicing this, they're almost every day praying for people that
don't know Jesus to come to come to Jesus."
- 19:46 - "And we try to go for the complex and

- 20:43 - “...You’re capable of passing things on.
Capable of having a rich history. Capable of having the next, and

- 22:18 - "My dad, his example and faithfulness
and....consistency of who he was as a person, I was like I want to
be like my dad, and because I wanted to be like him then I wanted
to serve Jesus and I wanted to be a good leader and I wanted to be
responsible and I wanted to be a good dad myself and all of
that. But that first started with, I made his decision that I
want to be like my dad, and that was huge. And so I’ve really tried
to take that and say, okay, in all this, I really want my son to
want to be like me first.”
- 23:50 - "And it wasn't just one thing that he did, but his
consistency over and over and over that that was so impacting and
then peppered with adventures. Right. And made it really
powerful.... there's a moment there's a season in life for us
as dads that the call is one of faithfulness. And it's like hard
because you're like, I want to do great things and this and that.
And the call is, no, actually do the same thing over and over and
be faithful at that thing."
